Today, Arkansas Business reports that the site — not far from the Galloway exit on Interstate 40 — is under contract but not fully under Amazon ownership yet.

A source tells us that the company is planning a 1 million-SF fulfillment center on part of a 154-acre tract owned by Tulip Farms Inc. — a company led by Jimmy Winemiller.

Amazon has another center under construction at the Little Rock Port scheduled to open next year.
